Thank you so much! Really fabulous job! I'm going to try one this weekend, and will try to post pictures too. (new to this)

Oh, and one possibly stupid question - when you measured your collar to shoulder, did you mean you added 2 additional inches for seam allowance? Or did I read that wrong? Maybe your measurement was just for 2 inches....

But very brilliant, seriously. And I think the tin foil adds that certain je ne sais quoi to your living room feng shui. Or something.  Wink

Thanks again!!!

Thanks again everyone! I cant wait to see everyones version of this. And as far as the shoulder.. I measured my shoulder/neck and added two inches for seam allowance and because if you go too small, the shirt ends up REALLY fitted and too tight.

Oh and btw, the foil Does at some je ne sais quoi (or at least that is what I try to tell myself) lol..

Following your instructions made this such an easy recon.  Here is my first.  I have a few more shirts to do this with when I get the time.
Big baggy shirt

to cute little shirt (It was only a large, so the sleeves didn't get as puffy as I wanted, but I still like it.

And here's a close-up of the sleeve with contrasting fabric.

I took it in a bit too much, so it's a little tight if buttoned, but it goes great open over tanks.  Smiley

Thanks again for the tutorial!  I loved it!

p.s.  Ignore the wrinkles, I've been wearing it all day.  Smiley

*adds to long crafty to-do list*
Thanks for the awesome tut! I love the shirts in stores, and now I can make them without the price-tag. I bet a shirt in a spring color would look awesome with embroidered details as well.
